Read 1 Kings 14 – No matter who is king, God Almighty is on the throne.
I love the Lord’s relationship with Ahijah the prophet. It is so clear. The Lord simply speaks to him (14:5). Mrs. Jeroboam (North) gets the brutal truth that her husband made the LORD furious (14:9), and their dynasty will receive His wrath… my NLT bible says the Lord will burn it up like TRASH, the ESV says LIKE DUNG – either way God has had it (14:10-11)!
Meanwhile, Rehoboam (South) also made a detestable mess of things, like permitting Asherah poles, pagan shrines and prostitutes. There was constant war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam.
This all seems outrageous, yet the Lord permits freewill. Where does your heart lead you? Deep down, what does the Lord see? Psalm 139:23 SEARCH ME, O GOD, AND KNOW MY HEART! TRY ME AND KNOW MY THOUGHTS! 🔥☝️❤🙏🏻🔥
